obama. how often does he play basketball and golf. i wish i had that kind of time. he is lazy but the media won't report that. i didn't come up with that obama said that to barbara walters. cnn embarrassed herself by trying to spin that has a racist comment that the words were echoing the president's own words. many in the liberal media reacted as expected but as the author points out they are not so liberal when it comes to accepting points of view. >> why is it the cultural left, you know, he drives them crazy. >> well, i don't know. i think he doesn't drive me crazy. it's more of a question how much tolerance people have for other points of view. roger is so direct and can be abrasive a and at times he is intentionally abrasive. he likes to pull people's chains. he told me a couple of times, i'm not a pudger but i'm a countered puncher. that certainly the way he sees himself, under assault by the cultural elite. when people fight back, they are controversial and roger is tough fighter. >> jon: he did build fox news channel into number one. tough being on top. everybody is t
and president obama goes back in time, biblical times. >>> and with congress poised for its first fight over gun it is, the white house prepares to ramp up the pressure. i will talk to a connecticut congressman. >>> first, topping political headlines, the senate passed a budget for the first time in four years. like the student these once were, they pull and all-nighter and wrapped up voting around 5 a.m. now, they head off on spring break for two weeks. but all is not necessarily well in the democratic dorm room there were four democratic senators who voted against the budget plan, all of whom are up for re-election and one, frank lautenberg from new jersey, he didn't vote at all. meanwhile, politico reporting senator tim johnson from south dakota not planning to run again in 2014. that puts yet another democratic seat in play. another notable democratic senator planning to step down, michigan's carl levin. yesterday on her facebook page, former governor jennifer granholm announced not to run for his seat. >>> and the president is on his way home right now. president obama spent four days in th
blitzer in "the situation room." >>> jake, thanks very much. happening now president obama calls iran a great civilization. so what's behind this renewed outreach even in the face of a potential nuclear threat? vice president joe biden spends one night in paris. the hotel bill comes to more than half a million dollars for him and his entire delegation. we're getting an extremely rare glimpse at how much it costs when a vice president of the united states travels. and a newborn baby found in a new york city subway, adopted by the man who found him. you'll find out how extraordinary this story really is and how it's playing out. >>> i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> president obama is kicking off the next leg of his trip to the middle east with what might seem to be a change at least in tune a little bit as far as iran is concerned. at a news conference in amman, jordan the president made a staunch plea for a peaceful solution in the face of growing nuclear concerns. >> if, in fact, what the supreme leader has said is the case, which is that developing a nuclear weap
to weigh in on an up popular law. cruz says it hasn't lived up to expectations. >> when obama care was being proposed the president told americans the average american family would see our premiums drop by $2,500. instead, today, the average american family has seen our premiums rise by $3,000. that's a $5,500 difference between what was promised and what has been delivered. so, for democrats on the 2014 ballot, such as mary lan drew of louisiana, mark pryor of arkansas, they had to vote in favor of the president's healthcare law in what may be considered largely red republican states. so, you can bet there will be ads running over the next two years saying, when senator so and so had a repeal obamacare, he or she voted in favor of it. >> shepard: mike, thanks a lot. let's bring in chris wallace. how is this thing shaping up? >> well, you put your finger on it. this is largely for show. we know that the budget, the democratic budget, is going to pass and the democratic controlled senate and will not pass in the republican-controlled house. but this vote-a-rama that mike is talking

problems have proved intractable. at the same time, president obama's trip to the middle east last week hassles put new focus on trying to restart the israeli-palestinian peace process. the trip through the region has provided kerry with a first-hand introduction to a daunting agenda and it is likely to be only the first of many such trips to come. for more on the challenges ahead for secretary of state for more on the challenges ahead for secretary of state kerry, i'm joined by michele dunne, formerly with the national security council and state department. she now heads the middle east program at the atlantic council. and susan glasser, executive editor of "foreign policy" magazine. it seems as john kerry hop scotchs around the region, all he is encountering are rocks and hard places. am i right? >> yes, you are right about that. i mean, this is a region i think that actually has been crying out for a bit more u.s. engagement, but that doesn't mean that it's going to be easy. the secretary kerry clearly shows he's ready to be engaged but, you know, he's walking into a situation in ira

:00 in the west. so glad you are with us on this saturday morning. president obama is headed home on air force one. he wrapped up the first official overseas trip of his second term in jordan. on his final day in jordan he played tourist sightseeing on the ancient city of petra and stopped in israel and the west bank during the four-day visit. let's get to jessica yellin live this morning in jordan. is the president going to come home with diplomatic cues to break about? >> reporter: he is because of the low expectations you mentioned. in israel he seemed to have a breakthrough with prime minister benjamin netanyahu on a personal level. they've had an icy history and they seemed like buddies this trip after two days together. the president also wanted to persuade israeli people that he's personally committed to their security and he understands the jewish history of persecution. reviews out of israel show on that front he largely succeeded especially after that big speech he gave to israeli youth. those are the intangibles. the more concrete accomplishment of the trip, he brokered a truce between
.s., the obama administration, very reluctant to get in involved. we just had gotten out of iraq, are still in afghanistan and the american people are drained. there is growing pressure on both left and right, particularly from both carl levin, and john mccain, the leading armed services republican last week, writing to the president saying, we've got to do more. we've got to stop assad from hitting his own people from the air. we've got to take out some of his air power, and we should be using military force. craig? >> nbc's andrea mitchell in amman, jordan. andrea, thank you. safe travels. >> reporter: sauthank you so mu craig. >>> and president obama is back at 1600 pennsylvania avenue after a busy four days in the middle east. he met with israeli, palestinian and jordanian leaders but did not get a happy homeum canning this morning from house intelligence chairman mike rogers. >> this has such global implications, and i really, candidly i thought the trip was a dus appointment for us. i think the president's squandered great opportunity to actually show leadership. >> reporter: and epic
obamacare, which was the central issue the last campaign where you remember president obama was re-elected, the senate went even more democratic, and the house democrats gained seats and won over a million more votes than the republicans. normal people would think that the obamacare issue might be settled. does anybody realistically think it's going away any time soon? the republican fantasy budget reduces taxes dramatically without a hint of how it would be possible. without exploding the deficit or dramatically raising taxes on the middle class. this is consistent with what the romney ryan ticket said on the campaign trail last fall. the same issue where they dodged, assembled, and ignored the perfectly reasonable question how is it possible? six months later it's back in the budget but there's still -- but there still is no answer. during the last 40 years there have been only four budgets without deficits. the last three clinton budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republ
privately before the meeting even begins, which is why i am excited that president obama seems to have changed course in the last three days. [laughter] i am sincere about this. it seems he's invited republicans for the first time to dinner 12 senators and president discussing without press conferences before without much comment afterwards to see what each side has in terms of with their aspirations have. he had lunch with paul ryan. for the reasons we don't understand is ronald reagan would of done that, george bush would have done that and for the country to be successful we have to put aside some of this vitriol that exists and begin to recognize it just because the other side doesn't have our view it doesn't mean that they are not motivated for love of country. we have to get to a different place where we can find a broad consensus based on principles. that's how we will win. ronald reagan for me is someone that is a role model not because of his great success. she is certainly that but also a role model for the political system that we have today. imagine a country with the energ

candidates, president obama, governor romney, agreed on one thing and that was that the people of this country faced a fundamental choice in the direction we were going to take. and the american people voted and they resoundedly rejected the approach that is now taken once again for the third year in a row in this republican budget. this budget, as we've heard over the last couple days, fails on a number of counts. number one, it adopts the european style austerity approach that we've seen slow down economies in many parts of europe. we should instead be focusing on job growth and putting people back to work rather than a budget like this budget which will result in 750,000 fewer americans working by the end of this year. that's according to the independent nonpartisan congressional budget office. and it will result in more than two million fewer people working next year. it also fails the test of taking a balanced approach. because it is founded on the failed idea that combiffing another round of tax cuts to people at the very high end of the income scale will somehow trickle

and balances within a decade. president obama and the congressional democrats say that they want to get america back to work and support a balanced approach to our fiscal problems. but they also support record deficits and budgets that never, ever balance. instead of government living within its means, the democrats' budgets raise taxes to fuel more spending and in turn millions of americans remain out of work. the only place that these failed policies will lead is to higher unemployment, depressed wages and a crushing debt crisis. the majority of americans are not satisfied with the current state of our economy and they're not hopeful about the future. and who can plame them? i believe the american people -- blame them? i believe the american people deserve more than the status quo and i believe the american people deserve leaders here in washington who are honest with themselves and their constituents about the challenges facing our nation and what it's going to take to get our nation back on track. 30 seconds? mr. ryan: another 30 seconds. the chair: the gentlelady is recognized for an addit
